Education

A few years ago we began a program to educate children on trauma prevention. We visit schools and talk to children, teachers and parents on how to prevent accidents from happening. To date we have spoken to 40,438 children and 3,040 teachers and parents. We have also published brochures on: "Safety at School ", "Safety at Home", "Prevention of Burns", "Road Safety" , ''Respect the Animals'' and many more which we distribute to the children and parents we meet. We also send these informative booklets to schools in areas of Greece that we cannot visit, and of course they can be found in all the big Pediatric Hospitals. It has been statistically proven that by introducing Trauma Prevention into the schools the number and severity of accidents occurring has been reduced by up to 50%.

Another part of this program is the publication of articles, in all the major newspapers and magazines, around holiday times on children's safety and tips on what to be careful of and how to prevent accidents from happening.
